hear obama speak, first of all, i can't believe half the words he says, but the news media doesn't challenge him on anything. the first thing he does is blame the republican party "they are not working with me, they are not doing this." but we all know the democrats are doing the same thing. they are telling people lies, not telling the truth. obama, his incompetence as a president, he blames -- this is why i'm not getting things done. he's supposed to be a leader of the people. the news media let's everything go, doesn't -- you know, obama is doing a great job and everything else. the american public knows it is not true. host: jim, thank you for the call. is that tactic different from president obama, president reagan, or president bush? guest: no. all presidents do that. the one point i totally agree with is that the press generally let's presidents say what they want to say and then challenges it in a different way. i mean, you get use today a president's normal line. this president blames the republicans, that's true. ok. so what? he blames the republicans. the republicans i
. >> sarah palin and the republican party choose style over substance at this weekend's conclusion to cpac. i'm thomas roberts and this is "way too early." we thank you for being up with us on this monday, march 18th. president obama's first trip to israel, will he be able to mend fences with prime minister benjamin netanyahu? european stocks plunge after a new bailout measure sparks fears of a run on the banks. >>> first we get to the news live at 5:30 a.m. here at 30 rock in new york city. president obama's renewed push for a grand bargain may be showing some early signs of paying off, at least with one top republican. senator bob corker of tennessee says he could envision raising tax revenue if democrats embrace big changes to medicare and social security. corker's position on sunday puts him at odds with other members of his party including house speaker john boehner who's ruling out the prospect of any new taxes. >> i think there by the way is a chance on a deal. i know the president is saying the right things and we have an opportunity over the next four to five months. i think republic

in the republican party, for example, calling president obama a socialist, the whole birther movement and embrace of donald trump during the presidential election, doesn't that need to end if african-americans are going to feel welcome in the tent? >> you're absolutely correct, carol. we're not here to make excuses. you are absolutely correct that tone matters. we've heard that throughout your listening sessions around the country with african-americans, with asians, with hispanic. we need to do a better job in communicating and controlling that tone and as a national party we'll do that. state parties will do that. and i think i'm excited about where we go from here. >> do you think that republicans will reject people like donald trump because he still embraces the birther issue. >> that gets back to reagan 11th commandment. we can agree on 80% of the things. he's not our 20% enemy. we need everyone. we have a big tent. we want to welcome everyone in. as a party we're the ones that should be leading and we should set that tone and we will do that in our activity. >> if donald trump said what he
obama, you lied. >> i think it's about dignity and respect. >> so this go-round, he's got the rifle, i've got the rack. >>> we begin with the republican party facing a serious case of the mondays. after a weekend carouse iing at cpac, no doubt downing a few in honor of st. patrick, today came the reckoning with the revelation of their own autopsy on what went badly wrong in 2012. this morning, it fell to rnc chair, reince priebus to give his party an uncompromising look in the rearview mirror. >> our message was weak. our ground game was insufficient. we weren't inclusive. we were behind in both data and digital. and our primary and debate process needed improvement. >> yes, mr. priebus presided over the party for all of that and he remains in charge for the release of the savage and scolding document, "the growth and opportunity project." gop. get it? a blistering report based on 52,000 voter contacts. and the respondents apparently didn't mince their words. >> focus groups described our party as narrow minded. out of touch. and, quote, stuffy old men. >> by the way, it's reince prieb
americans well know, president obama is trying to fundamentally change the u.s.a. he sees our system as basically unfair. and wants to provide more services and money to those who don't have very much. the republican party says the president's social justice outlook is damaging the freezing rain structure of the country. high taxation and high debt are holding back the economy and the g.o.p. believes mr. obama is creating a nation at war with itself. the affluent vs. the nonaffluent. over the weekend senator ted cruze of texas, a conservative, delivered a very emotional speech at cpac. >> my father came from cuba. he had been in prison. he had been tortured in cuba. and he came to texas with nothing, with 100 in his underwear. didn't speak a word of english. washed dishes making 50 cents an hour. in someone had came up to that 18-year-old kid avenue as he was washing dishes and suggested to him that 55 years hence his son would be sworn into office as a united states senator representing the great state of texas. [ applause ] that would have been unimaginable. >> now mr. cruze says h
bank where president obama is. is headed by fattah, political party fattah headed by the president mahmoud abbas. that's who obama is meeting with today. so it is a strong reminder of how far away the israelis and palestinians are from peace. how little optimism that meetings they are having will result in new peace talks much less eventual peace. >> alex, as you were saying it seems to highlight israel's position that palestinians don't want peace or interested in the talks. what is expected reaction from israel to be from this attack? >> it is very unclear at this time. there was a report on israel channel 10 there would be some sort of retaliation. we haven't seen anything immediate. in the past when incidents like this have happened. and more rockets. more injuries. there hasn't been any response from israel. not only unclear what a proportional response might look like. but given the president is in the region today, right here today, it is very, it's very unclear what israel could do to respond. >> all right, excellent reporting, abc's alex marquardt live from jerusalem. than
the iraq war vote. at the time, the thinking in the democratic party, it wound up being the way barack obama got into the race against hillary. okay. shameless plugs. kim? >> officer peter leboy was horribly shot outside of an elementary school that my daughter goes to a couple weeks ago. they're raising money for him. the elementary school is. there's a link to donate to help his family out. >> st. patrick's day might be over, but it is still time to give to st. baldrick day. it's an organization that fights childhood cancer. >> great. liz? >> i'm just going to say congratulations on five years of friends of mine who own cork and cork in washington, d.c. >> wow. okay. my shameless plug is if you like this, there will be plenty more tomorrow. i'm hosting again. it is shameless after all. >> are we coming back? >> that's it for this edition of "t he daily rundown. dhe daily remains in the mideast with the president. he'll be in jordan tomorrow. coming up next, it's chris jansing and company. ur digestive balance in sync? try align. it's the number one ge recommended probiotic that helps
is the hottest property in the republican party, maybe in all politics right now. he's a fascinating guy. he's left left of barack obama on drone strikes. he's to the right of paul ryan on budget cutting. he won't say directly i'm running for president. it would be crazy to say it at this point but he wants to be part of the conversation and he certainly leaves the presidential door wide open. >> we'll check out the program. always good to see you, chris. have a great sunday. don't miss the exclusive interview, kentucky senator rand paul with chris only. you have to watch "fox news sunday. accounts he's speak the to nicolle wallace and gary bauer. >> rand paul. quite fascinating. >>> new developments in the battle against leukemia and news on dementia and an update on losing weight with liposuction. doctors are here for a sunday house call in just a moment.

, the need to check president obama's background? priebus talks about getting the true nature of the party out to the public. he says it's been a communications problem. wasn't the most excellent communication of all during the election year that tape of mitt romney talking to rich people in florida about the people, the 47%, who aren't rich? priebus talks about outreach to the young, yet it was his party that opposed issues important to younger voters. marriage equality, abortion rights, gun safety. and he's still talking, actually pushing big tax cuts for the rich and cuts in medicare and medicaid that affect the middle class and poor. what a strange thing it is to hear reince priebus talking about building bridges when he was the one with his hands on the detonator? former pennsylvania governor ed rendell is with us as well as managing editor of the grio joy reid. i'm just wondering, why would a political party believe a new fr strategy would cover up for its policies? >> it makes no sense at all. first of all, their policies are bankrupt. they're the exact same, and they haven't change
to see from the party and when. to the war room. morris reid, an adviser to president obama's 2008 campaign, matt sclaup, deputy assistant to president george w. bush. good to see both of you. mo morris, in the rnc's report, it's noted that the party needs to be more inclusive. president obama's 2012 campaign manager, jim messina, today. take a listen. >> the problem is it misses the entire point. they didn't lose 71% of the latino vote because of tactics. they didn't lose over 60% of the youth vote and women because of tactics or outreach or data. they lost it because they're wrong on the issues and their party has moved so far to the right, they no longer speak not majority of americans. >> how accurate is that? >> it's very accurate. people judge you on actions and deeds. your words may be one thing, but your actions and your deeds speak clearly on what you're going to do. let's take mitt romney. a situation where he said he's for all people and gets behind closed doors is and says 47% of americans don't matter. people judge you not by what you say, but your actions and deeds. t
who may have been on the sidelines with the party. >> it could help in the short term. of course we saw president obama and his campaign raise a tremendous amount of money from the gay community, particularly after he announced his support for same sex marriage. there is a question on who would be the biggest recipient? the party out in front of the issue? the democratic party versus the republican party which is kind of either starting to he will brace it, sitting on his hands or still opposing it. and make no mistake. the social conservatives still make up a very important part of the republican party. and they are opposed to this. >> and real quick, i have to let you go but i have to ask about karl rove saying he can manning the next presidential candidate, republican saying flat out that he is for gay marriage. his response was a question that he was asked, he said he could manning it. >> i guess you theoretically could. marco rubio could end up being that 2016 choice is against gay marriage. when you get to a republican primary season, when everything is on the table. there is
unless an illegal alien is going to run. >> we didn't think there was a barack obama then. >> bill: we knew barack obama was sitting in the senate. there is nobody there. >> we knew he was a rising star in the party. we didn't even know for sure when hillary seemed so unbeatable that he was even going to run. when he did everybody thought its his first time out. look, that aside. just too many things that can happen between now and the onset of the real political season to be so sure. she is in a strong democratic position in the democratic party. if she runs, she will be a formidable candidate for the nomination. having said that it's a big -- too big a stretch to say she will be some kind of a shoe in. look, if things go badly in the next several years. if the economy doesn't improve. let's assume for the sake of discussion it stays the way it is with persistent high unemployment and sluggish growth and so on. it's not at all clear the country will be in anywhere near ready to elect another democrat. >> bill: maybe so. >> it's hard ever 8 years to win another term for any party. >> b
obama campaign manager david cluff says he is done with running presidential campaigns but note to biden. >> she is in both parties right now. by far i think the most interesting candidate. probably the strongest candidate. >> at this weekend's cpac, professional provocateur ann coulter hurled insults at chris christie, who was not invited to attend. >> even cpac had to cut back on its speakers this year by about 300 pounds. >>> business mogul and reality tv star donald trump told the cpac crowd what he thought about immigration reform. >> you know that the 11 million illegals, even if given the right to vote, you know you're going to have to do what's right. but the fact is, 11 million people will be voting democratic. >> and now to karl rove versus sarah palin. the former alaska governor who resigned mid-way through her first term all but called rove by his name with this political dig. >> the architects can head on back to -- [ cheers and applause ] they can head on back to the great lone star state and put their name on some ballot. >> rove wasted no time hitting back at palin. >> i
to do build our party. >> reporter: a pew survey shows six in ten americans think the g-o-p is out of touch. exit polls showed president obama won overwhelmingly among minority voters. >> the point simply is: they're trying to get a facelift when in fact this party needs a transplant. >> reporter: part of the plan of action: a 10 million dollar minority outreach program. likely in hopes of avoiding election season moments likes this.here's romney at the naacp. >> i'm going to eliminate every non essential expensive program i can find that includes obama care (crowd boos) >> reporter: also on the table:remember all those republican debates? are you just going to keep talking? >> yes sir. >> or are you going to let me finish what i have to say >> reporter: the plan is to: -limit them. shorten the primary calendar. and move up the party's convention date some republicans say this report is an acknowledgement of issues. >> it's a start. is it the magic formula, the silver bullet to start winning elections? no. the bottom line: modernize the message. >> catherine: more bay area news --

with five whole days to spare. officials say president obama will sign it when he gets back from his middle east trip. but the two parties are still battling over long-term spending plans. mike emanuel is on capitol hill for us tonight. mike, democrats and republicans have very different ideas about taxing and spending. >> that is absolutely true, shep. although both love using the word balance. senator patty murray says she favors a balanced approach which means some more tax revenue and some more spending. congressman paul ryan says his budget would balance without raising taxes. senators will vote on both proposals tomorrow. here is a key senate republican on democrat murray's budget proposal. >> significant time that our colleagues have produced a budget, i'm glad they have. but it is a disappointment in the sense that it, in no way, alters the debt course we are on. they claim it is balanced. they have said balanced over 50 times already in this debate. and, yet, that budget does anything but balance. >> i should note the house passed paul ryan's plan today with all republican votes. z
obama won that demographic by, they cannot win like that anymore and expect to win. i think they are moving forward on this you about i think the republican party as a whole has had really a death bed conversion and said, we can pay attention to other social issues but this is an issue that they are going to let go forward because they want to win elections and democrats, to their credit, are taking that opening and running with it. >> now, congresswoman, the pro obama group, organizing for action, is joining the push for immigration reform. their goal is to, quote, count to any opposition by conservatives to the current legislative effort with support from around the country. now, this is the obama ground game working for the president's second term agenda. can they succeed against the conservative opposition, in your opinion? >> well, i think absolutely they can and i think it's actually a welcome addition to the efforts that the president puts out with the bully pulpit but adding this grassroots component across every group across the united states to really bolster the p
party, the games beat tennessee state 67-64 and now they will play memphis in the morning. president barack obama has weighed in on the women's ncaa tournament and president barack obama picked second seed cal as one of his four schools to reach the women's' final four. it happens in fresno. >>> 6:48 is the time. sal, it is a great month for basketball >> it is a great month but very distracting for some of us. >>> i would like to go to the maps, boy, that was quick, westbound 92, they just got a new crash reported a minute ago. thank you, westbound 92 at the toll plaza, we just got word of a new crash, they are blocking one of the fast track lanes, westbound 92 right at the san mateo toll plaza, a brand-new crash was reported and chp is not even there yet and if it does it will cause a big problem. northbound 280 and on the corner it is stop and go. we have a 20 minutes delay here at the toll plaza and we have talked about the problems near the walnut creek fender-bender so use care as you do. let's go to steve. >>> well, some rain overnight, not

wonders of the world. known to others as home to indiana jones' excellent adventures. >>> president obama and his team are enroute, home from the middle east. but they left one member of their party behind. secretary of state john kerry. martin fletcher is live for must tel aviv with more. martin, good to see you, sir. who is kerry planning on meeting with? >> reporter: well, hi, craig. he is going to be seeing the israeli prime minister, benjamin netanyau this evening, having dinner together. i guess if president obama's visit here to try to turn things around was step one in that attempt, step two is a visit now of the secretary of state john kerry. he is going to be meeting with the prime minister. he met earlier in the day in jordan with the palestinian leader, mahmoud abbas. his talks are all going to be about how it put into action what president obama talked about, which was a renewed peace process between israeli and the palestinians. that's what his job is going to be. there is hope there will be serious negotiations in tweaks if the americans have their way. >> one of the key he
-- before he unveils his budget. again, i think that it really comes -- from president obama to take a lead, to keep meeting with republicans and enable to try to bring the parties together to find a way to find common ground. right now, we are not seeing it-- >>> is that fair? talking about march madness? i mean, look, that's -- he does do that. but they are dealing with the budget. he's going to unveil it, i think this next week. >> right. he's the one president who has taken the long toast unveil a budget. why wait for four years for the senate to pass a budget, to have a cut-and-paste document that shows much more of the same -- stimulus spending and raising taxes at the end, no savings, which is what the editorial board of the washington post said, the democratic plan had no scpaiftion will not deal with the long of this term fiscal issues of our country. >> eric: do how do we get out of this? >> the two parties coming together will produce some results. i don't think anybody should be wild eyed about the prospects of everybody reaching across and meeting the other guy more than halfwa
to what he called the cookie cutter conservatism. you think that's going to help the party with young voters who supported president clinton -- sorry, president obama, over mitt romney by margin of 24 percentage points? >> i don't know that it does help or doesn't help. what i first have to get clear is what is libertarian conservatism? the two don't seem to mesh for me. you're talking about someone who is certainly against marriage equality but every libertarian, true libertarian i know wants to stay out of my life, and every social conservative i know wants to be in my life. i'm not really sure about the difference here. we're still talking about a guy who disagrees with the lions share of the civil rights legislation rulings of the '60s because he said they infringed on personal property rights. so i've got real dilemmas with rand paul and some of those issues that i think might play better with younger audiences. and i just don't see how he plays well. >> hogan, another republican senator making waves right now, another tea party darling is ted cruz of texas. in an interview over
the president. cashin' in, crashing the party right now. >> eric: i'm eric boling and "cashin' in" crew is with us this. we and welcome everybody. don't crack the bubbly just yet. it's been three years since president obama signed obamacare into law. regulations keep growing and growing. is it starting to get messy. republicans declaring messy that is one of architects saying it himself. >> i think we know it is going to be messy. there will be things that come up that are unanticipated. >> eric: he is right. when we bought the cake. woman said obamacare that is why my hours got cut. i guess we can expect more of that? >> you are going to see a lot more of that. this is direct impact that it is having. we had the legislation and people are trying to read it and get through it. now you see the regulations piling up a and practical day to day coming out in the form of a woman who is trying to make a case and earn a living and run a business. >> eric: there are a lot of things that we learned about the obamacare law and we're going to roll them while you talk. this is growing by the day. >
're communicating our message to voters. if we're not, the obama campaign did an incredible job defining mitt romney. if we were the party of the rich, that was basically six months of heavy advertising by the democrats. i think it was important to reposition ourselves. to talk to voters clearly about what we stand for. >> it sounds like what we're hearing, the mention is fine for the most part. no major problems with the message. it is how we are reaching voters and how we are delivering that mention. is that a fair assessment? >> i wouldn't say, there are things we can do to talk about our policies better. there are ways we can improve our message. he didn't talk so much about policies and i thought that's a clear point that needs to be made with regard to this rollout. there are a lot of tactical changes we need to make as a party and a movement to talk to people in a more clear way. >> save immigration. we'll talk about that. one of the major recommendations from the report has to do with the primary process. the rnc wants to move toward a shorter primary season. fewer debates in the last cycle.
of the tea party. all the placards up there, the hitler mustaches, the black face, if you will, superimposed on the face of barack obama. these obvious racial things that keep popping up in the visuals. what does your study tell you about the nature of the racial peace here of the tea party? >> well, thanks for having me, chris. my study suggests that there is a strain of racism in the tea party going all of the way back to when it began in 2010. there's definitely a racist strain but it goes beyond racism, homophobia as well, chris. >> let's talk about how they fit together. >> sure. >> is it a resumption of the old south, the dreamy nostalgia you get in the old movies like "gone with the wind"? when there are no gays, where blacks were slaves, mexicans were in mexico. i mean, is this what they want? >> that's precisely the case, chris. what we've found out and come up with reactionary conservative. a regular conservative or mainstream conservative recognizes change is necessary to avoid revolutionary change. reactionary conservative wants to go back in time. in the book we tie tea party to
of perception, between him and some elements of the republican party. and so you get the sense from a lot of people that personally netanyahu and barack obama have not been close, that they have not been on the same page about a lot of things. but they are on the same page. >> the difference, i think, and i couldn't agree with you more, is that netanyahu can say i'm protecting israel, i thought rodney was going to win and that's what i do. >> absolutely. >> supposed to be pro equity itting this court. >> exactly. republican politicians who have used for political expediency, this false characterization of the president all the way to his cairo speech and that has impacted barack obama's -- the opinion of him on the ground in israel and part of what he's doing now is to go over the heads of the leadership and talking heads and get right to the israeli people and form a direct personal bond with them. >> you know, jim, one of the things that was amazing to me is with all of this about the president's hostility to israel and the worse want to deal with israel, you know the president that nev
. president obama arrives in israel for his first visit there as president. we'll go live to jerusalem in just a few minutes. back here at home, some republicans recoil at the party's plans for the future. the chairman is in the hot seat. he'll be here live to counter his critics. >>> plus, senate leader harry reid says democrats will not have an assault weapons ban in their new gun regulation bill. and that is not sitting well with one of the top backers. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, march 20th, 2013. the first day of spring. come on, you like this tie. it's colorful. this is "the daily rundown." i'm luke russert in for chuck todd who is in israel for the president. he'll be joining us from there in a few moments. president obama has arrived in the middle east to begin i had four-day tour of the region. but it's not all pomp and circumstance. difficult issues loom as the leaders prepare for meetings later today. but publicly, the focus is on what president obama called the eternal bond between the two nations. >> the united states of america stands with the state of israel be
that the party needs to showcase the diversity of opinion that is within its ranks currently. so think about it. young voters broke heavily for president obama back in 2008 when he did not favor same-sex marriage. it was only about a year ago that he evolved on his position. i don't think it's as cut and dry as one party is all in favor and one party is all opposed. i think republicans need to sort of highlight the diversity of opinion. >> how do you do that, quickly? >> i think you can have folks, pick someone like marco rubio, you showed a clip earlier. he believes marriage is between a man and woman but he thinks states should be able to decide what they want to decide. so he has taken this middle position. i think that's an interesting sort of -- it's neither black nor white on the issue that we can begin highlighting. >> let me -- we have -- rob portman, very publicly, i believe it was last week -- time flies in this day and age. very publicly came out and said, look, i oppose same-sex marriage, now supportive of it and mentioned his son, wil. middle son who two years ago told him he is ga
a dramatically better future. that ought to be the republican party. [applause] >> we are not the anti-obama movement. we are for the american future with greater safety, freedom and prosperity for all. we are for empowering individuals, not empowering bureaucrats. i think there are dozens, and you can see in the as ever in a newsletter two weeks ago on pioneers of the future versus prisoners of the past, there are dozens of new areas we are about to break and we about to be dramatically better opportunity, and the city and both parties is literally blind to the great potential of this country. but i just want to say one thing and closing. and supposed to matter. we need your help. we need your help, new university, going to sign up we'll start with a course next week on driverless cars. and all the breakthroughs that are coming into one area but will have opportunities of the next few months both on lessons to learn as republicans and on what's going on. i want to close with one point about principles. i do believe that we ought to focus on the right to rise because we want every american t
a point about obama voters being lazy, wanting free things from the government. those comments were not lost on our communities. the other issue the republican party has and what they need to address is their unwillingness to call out racism when it occurs in their party. when democrats, there was a situation recently where a liberal group made a comment about senator mcconnell's wife and progressives were very quick to condemn those statements because they had racial overtones. the republicans have got to be willing when people in their party say something sexist or racist to condemn it and push those type of people out of the party. and they seem unwilling to do that. >> in light of that, senator, tell us here, exactly your response when you saw that videotape, i'm sure you saw it at the cpac where there was a interaction. is that indicative of what you think is the problem here going on between those who are trying to reach out when they haven't even converted those within their own party as to the need for an enlightened racial policy? >> i was mortified. they need to get real,
is throwing a lavish party and we got an invitation to go behind the scenes. >> good morning to you. it is 23 minutes after the hour. here's quick look at the headlines for you. a few hours from now president obama will nominate thomas harris as the new labor secretary. he heads the justice department civil rights division. he faced criticism for giving misleading testimony to the u.s. mission on civil rights. he would replace hilda sill lease. instead of eating while you were distracted you are consuming more calories. people who eat meals or snacks watching tv playing games or reading tend to eat more. >> i do believe that study. >> the u.s. postal service is $16 billion in debt and stopping saturday delivery to stay athroat they say. you wouldn't know it by the way the agency is spending millions to send workers to a lavish conference in california and it is happening this week. we have an inside look at the event. >> here at the annual postal forum executives will meet with thousands of shippers and those in the direct mail industry. and then everyone gets to have a good time in stan fran
on the peace progress. the president says he is focused on hearing from will party on what it will take to restart negotiations. president obama--will return to jerusalem later today for a speech to is really young people. early today, israeli police said militants in gaza fired rockets at southern israel. >> power has been restored to about the san francisco residence. this morning about 3500 pg&e customers in san francisco's bayview district or in the dark after a power line fell on the streets of new hall end lydia . causing a transformer fire. pg&e says the outage happened shortly before 2 this morning. about 200 homes are still without power. >> another the building store were following this morning. two people were hit by utility truck in san francisco. it happened just after 10 last night apple vincente and west portal. authorities say both the man and the woman was seriously injured. there at hospital. investigators think dense fog maybe blame. there currently no charges. >> police are looking for the head coach of the traveling bay area baseball team. he is a speck of molesting
balanced budgets. >> you pointed out to the gop leadership is held hostage by the tea party. when john boehner said we don't have a long term debt problem in this country it seemed he and president obama agreed to tone down the rhetoric to calm people a a bit. were you encouraged by that statement? >> i am encouraged in the sense that there is not a long term debt problem. there's a health care problems that underlies a lot of the concern about medicare. medicare actually could be a solution to the long term health care bucket problem because medicare's much more officials. if we used medicare and made it available to all people, we actually would have a way of bringing down that cost curb, health care increase that is going to cripple the entire economy. >> single pair would save the economy, but you the would hurt the insurers and that can't happen. cypress securing a bailout are there any events we can learn? >> one is that when you live by the idea that you are going to be an economy based upon tax avoidance, which is exactly what had cyprus has done, you can die by the same princi
-wing advocacy, just like president obama has a jedi mindset. and they can help themselves. [laughter] neil: that is an ap story. they are carried in every newspaper. so that becomes their official take. the tea party flavored house, they are the obstructionists. they resist war spending, the democrats insist on more spending. if you're going to penalize them, police say the other one is equally antagonistic. >> let's call upon the press to have a decent professional respect for your own profession. if you are an editor, discipline your reporters. there is such a thing as objective reporting. many don't have objective standards in the profession. and people to enforce it. they haven't done that. they are now the single most seriously failed institution of our democracy. if our democracy fails, the press has joined with the liberal big government left in their fear that the people might understand and depressed in my estimatton needs to go through a serious period of reappraisal. are we going to be a decent service of the nation's people in their own profession? or are we going to be a bunch
to quote, unquote, evolve and party of stoogy old white men-- >> i know you want to turn this into a republican issue. when obama does it at one point he has a real position, he's for it. >> sure. >> sean: then he's running for president, polls don't show he's in agreement with the american people and then he's against it and gets reelected and now i can be for it again. now what? that is what everything everybody i know, dennis praguer, hates about politicians. god bless her, i like hillary clinton in some ways, i've got to tell you something, that's so phony, i want to read this prompter and tell you. it didn't seem sincere. >> we've got to be clear, it's a flip-flop as they say in the case of the president because he knew it was not popular when he was running in 2008 and he knows it's popular now and that's fine and maybe he sincerely changed his mind, but i believe originally he was for same-sex marriage. the thing is that what you just said is a very important point and i'd like to address it about stoogy old republicans or men or/and women. >> sean: and the republi
about president obama. but a cnn poll shows that fewer than half of americans believe israel is an i ally of the united states. dramatically broken down by party lines. republicans felt israel was an ally, only a third of democrats thought so. israel is a major ally of the united states. >>> a michigan grandmother is found guilty of murdering her teenage grandson. they saw the glock that sandra lane used to shoot jonathan hoffman multiple times. lane claims she acted in self defense in an argument with the 17-year-old but prosecutors had this evidence. a 911 call made by hoffman. >> 911, what's your emergency? >> i've been shot. >> what? >> i've just been shot. >> where are you at? okay. how did you get shot? who shot you? >> my grandma shot me. >> your grandma and grandpa shot me? >> my grandma. i'm going to die. [ inaudible ] >> i got shot again. help me. >> you got shot again. are they still there? >> someone get help now. i need help. now! >> are they still there? >> yes. >> i think -- >> lane reportedly faces at least 14 years in prison. >>> it's been 593 days since the united s

segment with mark. this is a very confusing message. if you're a loyal opposition, the party of fiscal responsibility, you should recognize that this debt situation we have, that is soon going to be $17 trillion, and by the time that president obama steps out, it will be $20 trillion. when he was senator obama he called george w. bush being unpatriotic, the debt was 9 trillion. so something has gone awry, and hope any we don't see a g.o.p. leadership up there in the house, especially, that is starting to take the baby stepped back because we do have this debt ceiling vote coming up soon. we have to stop the spending -- >> neil: you used to work there, and i always think there's a method to all madness, and i think that someone there, within the ranks of the party establish; must be saying, we can't agreg aggressively push this because maybe in and of itself, pushing the idea of immediately attacking the debt and we don't, immediately backfires on us. >> i'll go bark the words of the former chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mullen who said our debt is the most critical national secu
speakers and i found myself in agreement with you, and that is the republican party needs to get tougher. ill h'll be honest, i was surprised when john boehner said he trusted obama. he has been duplicitous and trying to get boehner fired. why would he say he trusts him? >> there are a lot of things we believe in and shouldn't give up on and some of the things i was talking about, i think, attracts people from both the left and right and that's supporting your right to trial by jury, your right to be innocent until proven guilty, these are such time-honored concepts that i think it allows the republican party to get bigger, but our young people want us to stand for something, really stand on principle and i think that's why the filibuster probably helped me to gain enough votes to win in the poll. >> sean: do you identify yourself as more a libertarian conservative? people ask me, i'm a registered conservative in new york, i consider myself a reagan conservative. how do you -- is libertarian fair or-- do you embrace it, what? >> it depends what people mean by it. i use the term constitut
, there is not a lot of optimism among the three parties, the u.s., israel and the palestinians, that peace negotiators will be back at the table any time soon. >> alex, there have been reports and only reports of chemical weapons in syria. president obama has said that that is his red line. is this conflict overshadowing the visit? >> reporter: we have to be very careful when we talk about chemical weapons. when the white house talks about chemical weapons and red lines, what we believe them to mean are the very potent chemical weapons we know to be in their arsenal, vx, mustard and sarin gas. no indication those have been used and no confirmation that chemical weapons were actually used in these attacks yesterday by allegedly by the rebels and the regime. the white house has said there's no evidence. but despite that, this obviously raises the fears of their use of them falling into the wrong hands, so while the trip won't be overshadowed, it certainly highlights the need to discuss this while here in israel. >> all right. alex marquardt in jerusalem, the world will be watching. thank you for that. >
that either party have anything concrete for 100 million working poor. would pick it up. president obama promised $9.50 but 2011, he never mentioned it in 2012. because he did not mention it, the democratic practice of the party was that no other candidate would mention it because that would embarrass the president. they even muzzled people like elizabeth warren and chris murphy. the state of the union speech he mentioned $9 by 2015, going backwards. so, now there are bills in congress and the one that we favor, h.r. 1346, just introduced last thursday by alan grayson from florida, and it was entitled -- catching up with 1968. 1346. host: our guest is ralph nader, the author of the book 17 solutions -- the author of the book "17 solutions." to join the conversation and speak with mr. nader, for republicans, 202-585-3881. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for independents, 202-585-3882. see theld you like to president called for in terms of minimum wage? you mentioned what he talked about now and what he talked about before. what does your bill do? when would you like to see it go? host: that

is that the republican party doesn't care enough about people and we have to change that. >> so, when conservatives last year said that not only the reporting was unfair. too unfair to barack obama, and also that the polls were spewed in all that, you know, the counter to that was, republicans were out of touch and now come to the support saying, hey, republicans were out of touch. do you feel vindicated? >> not vindicated. but even more, as significant as the policies. the report is also critical of things that were wrong with the romney campaign technologically. >> i don't want to talk about that. >> i just want to point out that is a criticism of the media that is also reflected in this report. not vindicated, howie, but the report is right on. the real question is looking forward, will republicans follow the recommendations in the report? >> is it possible for republicans to ever sort of win favorable coverage, except by being more like democrats? >> on that point, the subject of gay marriage, polls moving in the direction of favoring gay marriage on younger people. when hillary clinton comes out an
conservative conference this weekend, firing up the crowd with jabs at president obama and new york mayor michael bloomberg. is this part of a comeback tour? abc's martha raddatz joins us with more. >> reporter: the conference was supposed to be looking forward to the future of the republican party. but it was not the new republican starts getting all the attention. it was one many thought was fading away. >> governor sarah palin. >> reporter: sarah palin is back, and tossing red meat with the best of them. palin and her big gulp made the biggest splash with her swipe at new york mayor bloomberg's failed attempt to limit the size of sugary drinks. the crowd seemed to think even cooler was palin's jab at president obama and democratic proposals on gun control. >> new background checks? dandy idea, mr. president. should have started with yours. >> reporter: few pollsters or pundits believe she would succeed at a bid for national office. but you wouldn't know that by listening to her. >> barack obama promised the most transparent administration ever. barack obama, you lied. >> reporter: but

that this entire trip is about just showing netanyahu and obama can be friends. >> i think that's very important to establish some kind of trust. then when he goes and meets with the palestinians, he has the same goal. if he can't get these two parties to trust him as an honest broker, it dooms peace making going forward. this is an important elementary to showelement toshow that they can be buddies. the other story the one presidential story that someone took the limo was put out of service because of fuel? i can't believe that was put in the headlines. you have all these reporters over there hungry for news, and it's all pretty much candid scripted and they write about december sal fuel. and betty white mansion to stale relevant all the time. thank you for joining us on the "the young turks"on the "theyoung turks." >> lawyers for the gitmo prisoners say they began their hunger strike on february 6th to protest the alleged confiscation of their personal items.

of this is what is wrong with the party now. joining me now is melissa harris perry and e.j. dionne. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us. >> melissa? >> they couldn't decide who gets to be president. president obama gets to be president. right? and the reason he gets to be president is because he won a majority of not only the electoral college, which is sufficient, but also the popular vote. >> he would have won more if they had teamed up. >> i'm telling you, there's two or three states i'm certain we could have given over. >> right. >> look, i am convinced that part of what we're seeing now in the republican party is a kind of -- like they were so sure that they could not change the minds of voters but suppress voters from having an opportunity to put their own opinions on those ballots that they are at a loss because they didn't know what to do on the other side if they were going to lose. we really saw that shock from republican operatives on election night. >> we saw the meltdown of rove on fox. >> right. >> you know, e.j., when you look at rnc chairman priebus and h

polls that i alluded to earlier, three-quarters of obama voters said that they were for same sex marriage. three-quarters of romney voters said they were not. so there are people in the democratic party who, you know, support traditional marriage. i thought it was really interesting, by the way, this week. i thought it was politico went to a lot of the red state democratic senators on the ballot in 2014. people like mark prior of arkansas and others, mary landrieu in louisiana. they haven't changed their position. and i still think the republican party is going to remain a pro-family, pro-marriage, pro-life party. i don't think that will change. and if it does, by the way, i think the big tent will become a pup tent. if you look at the data, 44% of all the votes mitt romney got last november were from self-identified evangelicals. >> romney's data analyst suggests that republicans and independents who voted for the president who, by the way won, actually overwhelmingly support marriage equality and so this is a growing issue for republicans and independents. you know, again, i th

rnc chairman announced party policy changes. >> next, two former middle east advisers to the white house discuss the implications of president obama's trip to the middle east next week. from washington institute, this is about 90 minutes. >> good afternoon. good afternoon. welcome to the washington institute. i'm rob the director of the inconstitute. i'm happy to welcome you here today. just at the outset, if i can please remind you, cell phones off, please, not just on vibrate but off completely. this event is being live-streamed for our thousands of fans around the world. this event is being broadcast by c-span, so, everything you say can and will be used against you. so, please too turn your cell phones off. we're gathered here today because president obama is off for the inaugural overseas visit of his second term and he is going to the middle east. going to israel, to the west bank, and to jordan. his itinerary is a very different than the itinerary of his middle east trip in the beginning of his first term. we're going to hear more about that. and i think the mission of this
but what happens next and was this all for show? >> well, it's an exercise in each party demonstrating their vision for how you should fund the government. we're still waiting on president obama to release his own budget which will have potentially a competing vision. and adam is exactly right, it's just a matter of inches going forward and the big dernifferen on whether you want to boost investments over the long term or whether it's about cutting spending, these are big questions that lawmakers are facing. i would get in a room with a handful of guys, all men, and they would try to come to table with a deal. that's not how it works in washington. >> should it be at least a starting point? >> well, i think that they usually come together when they actually really need to to prevent something disastrous from happening to the budget or the economy. this is something that will come up again with the debt ceiling fight this summer. but if you look at what the senate just passed, this is as christina said, they want to raise taxes. >> guys, let's switch to gun control here. christina, ther
democrats. >>> with president obama set to release his own budget when lawmakers return in early april, is compromise in the cards? new york's jonathan shay doesn't think so writing parties can't find the middle ground, because the middle ground doesn't exist. hmm, i don't call that optimism, josh. >> well i think first most important thing to note about these amendments is none are going to become law. because the budget is not going to become law. what part of the deal from the fiscal cliff deal a few months ago was that the senate democrats had to pass a budget in order to get a debt ceiling increase. they'll pass a budget. the house passed a budget. in theory what they're supposed to do is reconcile the two of them, come up with a compromise and make that budget the law. that's not going to happen, this was the end. this bill is going to die and there's no implication for keystone, excel, abortion or anything else. it's symbolic. >> quoting myself, it's a statement of priorities. and the fact that the republicans are still trying to litigate the issue of the affordable care act, st
party is in a bit of a bind. they have lost the popular vote in four out of the last five presidential elections. and president obama i think even president obama's top aides would say was imminently beatable last november and yet he really trounced mitt romney. so in addition to the messaging problem that the republican party clearly has, there's also a demographic problem that they face and that's why you had the soul searching. it was necessary not only to reassure the party activists, but also i think to get donors reassured, as well. there was a risk there that some people were going to stop giving money to the republican party. >> when i talked to ari fleischer in our last hour, he said the message that we have to have is that it's a big tent and here's what he said. >> both parties have these issues. for the republican party, what it means is that republicans need to adhere to our conservative message, our conservative core, but do so in a way that invites other people to join in. we can not do it in a way that pushes people out or says they're not welcome. that's been a real re

. the parties mocked the government for believing [indiscernible] the phone call was a step forward. >> israel did not agree to turkey's call to in the blockade of gaza. roughly adapter president obama left israel, israeli police raided a palestinian protest camp on the outskirts of jerusalem. protesters had erected the camp last wednesday within the e1 settlement zone, which bisects the west bank and cuts palestinians off from their land more than 200 israeli officers leveled the camp before dawn on sunday. a palestinian lawmaker said he and four others were arrested. an earlier encampment on the same site was dismantled by israeli forces in january. the united states has announced it will transfer control of bagram prison to the afghan government today, the key details on the deal have not been disclosed. the u.s. was seeking to retain veto power over whom could be released from the prison, which human rights groups have dubbed the other guantanamo. in addition, the u.s. wanted assurances that certain prisoners would not be released even if they could not be prosecuted in court. in a central
in this country. when you look from president obama to president clinton to hillary clinton to rob portman to dick cheney, cleric mccaskill, jon huntsman. there are a tremendous number of federal officials, highly visible people in both parties. not only saying people should have this right, which is the moral position, but also saying something that i think creates an incredible opening for the public which is i changed my mind. people get in different ways. but that is also really different. in the civil rights era which is obviously the sort of historical precedent that people look to. the court was way out front. sometime in unanimous decisions like brown, in school busing, obviously in a lot of areas of extending rights to minorities. they were way ahead of both parties. you go back to the original civil rights raer and both parties were table because we lived in a completely racist, elite structure. and so the court was really one of the only elite institutions in the country that ran against that. while i understand the broader context, i think this is a supreme court that by that historica
and she accused barack obama of having a reality show. >> she's got a tart approach and she gives a good show, reality or not reality. but i don't think she's a serious political factor in the republican party. and i have to say if i was going it take political advice from someone in that spat, it would be from karl rove and not from sarah palin. >> thank you very much. ruth marcus, i can't see you -- taking advice from either one. but to be continued. and meanwhile, the blame game, the republican party chairman, raince priebus took a thinly veiled shot at his predecessor in trying to explain what went wrong for the gop. >> for quite a while when we walked into the inc, both credit cards of the rnc were suspended. this is before i walked in. now just think about this for a second. if you got one of two of the biggest national political parties in the world, that has both credit cards suspended. >> are you saying that former chairman steele ruined the party or at least the rnc financially? >> i'm not going to go there. listen, i think the numbers speak for themselves. >> they speak for th
when she's basically quit? >> anderson, this is a distraction. the future of the republican party is bright and exciting. this is a marathon and not a sprint. republicans cannot go against their core principles. it's really a matter of driving home these core principles and going after obama and the left on these issues that in these demographics that we're losing in, to say that republicans favor things like school choice. look where obama is in d.c. if you look at sool choice there, he spent three years arguing against funding the d.c. scholarship program. >> where do you see the brightness? >> -- the lowest rate in the entire country. we can't give up on those issues. >> where do you see the brightness? you said the future looks bright. the rnc doesn't seem to think so. >> no, the republican party, all this inner discussion between different wings, this is normal. if you read michael duffy's book "the president's club" this is nothing new. this is something that has gone on since nixon and reagan and it happened in the liberal party, too. the democratic party as well. the reaso
